This is our second Apologia science text. We started with Zoology 1, and loved it so much that we wanted to continue the series. This notebooking journal is great to have open while I'm reading to my kids. They can write down fascinating facts as we read them, color some of the pages to keep them from fidgeting, and my 9-year old loves the crossword puzzles. Sometimes we do the copywork, and sometimes we don't. It depends on how much copywork we've had in other subjects that day. I highly recommend this journal to go along with the text. As far as ages go, I still have my 3rd grader use the junior note booking journal. She's a very young 3rd grader (July birthday), and the junior journal works much better for her.
Love Apologia Science Curriculum & check out the supplemental board game that goes with this series!

We love Apologia science curriculum and journal and have used them for so many years! Did you know that there is an awesome supplemental board game for your kids available for Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day? It's called Race to The Reef! Head on over to this link to pick up a copy: http://feastingonjoy.com/shop/downloadables/homeschool/
The Apologia notebooks are durable, well-designed, and a fantastic supplement to reinforce and further explore the ideas presented in the Zoology 2 textbook. My three children love having their own personal notebooks, and are more excited about studying zoology than ever.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this product, and will be purchasing more notebooks to supplement the other textbooks in this series.
